San Diego led 24-0 at hafltime, putting the game to bed almost immediately. Philip Rivers had a great day, completing 21 of 28 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. Ryan Mathews ran for 103 yards on 29 carries, churning out tough yards to keep the clock running.
Over at Bolts From the Blue, John Gennaro wrote about the win, pinpointing Keenan Allen's performance as a noteworthy one:
Keenan Allen was the star, and focal point, of the Chargers offense in this game. He finished as the team's leader with 59 receiving yards, and caught 2 of Rivers' 3 touchdown passes on the day. He missed part of the game with what appeared to be a dislocated shoulder, but came back healthy after a little while. If any game has ever cemented his place as the 2013 offensive rookie of the year leading candidate, this one was it.
On the other side, Eli Manning threw two more interceptions, taking his league-leading total to 20 on the season. Hakeem Nicks had a huge game, catching five passes for 135 yards including a 51-yard bomb.
Andre Brown also showed up, running for 81 yards on 16 carries. Defensively, the Giants were absolutely helpless in allowing 388 total yards and 25 first downs.
Ed Valentine of Big Blue View wrote about the Giants' offensive line issues:
Will Beatty gave up his 11th sack of the season. James Brewer whiffed on at least two blocks, nearly got Manning broken in half and showed for the second straight week why the Giants rarely let him see the field for his first two-and-one-half seasons. David Diehl got pushed back into Manning for a sack. The Giants opened a couple of holes for Andre Brown to run through in the second half when the game was out of reach. Big deal.
